Montessori Wooden Shape Sorting Object Permance Box with Shape Wheel
This uniquely designed wooden shape matching and sorting Montessori object Permanence Box provides toddlers, preschoolers, and young children with experiences of object permanence (Understanding that an object exists even if we don’t see it). Object permanence is one of the first topics in Montessori classrooms or Montessori homeschool settings. As the shape blocks “disappears” into the box, children will learn that they are still there by opening the door. To make it more interesting, this shape sorting box comes with a removable turn wheel for those who are ready for the challenge. This is a great learning toy for toddlers and preschoolers.
Estimated delivery by April 7 - April 13
What's included: 1 wooden object Permanence Box with shape sorting turn wheel, 5 wooden shape blocks, 1 wooden turn wheel with child-size wooden screw
This Permanence Box is designed with 5 wooden shape blocks and a turn wheel and truly grows with your child. Younger toddlers would enjoy the self-correcting shape sorter without the turn wheel (triangle, rectangle, circle, trapezoid, semi-circle), while older toddlers would take pride in being able to complete more difficult tasks of matching the shapes on the turn wheel to the box before fitting in the blocks.
This Montessori toy also develops patience, hand-eye coordination, and fine motor skills. It practices precise hand movements while sending information to the brain as well as develops hand, wrist and finger control - also known as ""refined hand movements"". With repeated use, the child learns how it feels to succeed when he or she has achieved a goal on his or her own.

Children could learn their 2D and 3D shapes and practice block stacking as they are working on this Montessori wooden toy. Children can also practice their fine motor skills by latching and unlatching the box's door.
